Nothing makes my teeth gnash quite as much as the sobbing, bile-spewing cacophony of celebrity Clinton sycophants now screaming blue murder about it all being a fix, demanding democracy be destroyed [by overturning the result in the Electoral College on Dec 19], joining protests which depict horrific scenes of violence and massively exaggerating, before, during and now after the election, how ‘monstrous’ Trump actually is. …
‘Trump is one of the very worst things to happen to our World in the last 100 years,’ declared actor Sir Patrick Stewart last night.
Really, Sir Patrick?
Worse than two World Wars?
Worse than the two atomic bombs landing in Japan?
Worse than the assassinations of JFK, Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King?
Worse than 9/11?
Worse than Dunblane and Sandy Hook?
Worse than ISIS?
Get a grip, man.

One of the reasons for this despair may have been her pre-election pledge on Live with Kelly and Michael to go and live in Spain if Trump won.

No wriggle room for any ambiguous doubt there, right Chelsea?
Well, unless you’re all mouth and no Hillary pantsuit, which is precisely what you turned out to be.
‘I really, REALLY want to move to Spain right now,’ Ms Handler insisted the day after the election. ‘But…’
There’s always a ‘but’ with these celebrity political promises, isn’t there?
‘…everyone in my office is like “You have a responsibility, you have a voice and you need to use it”.
Hmmm. You mean they’re all terrified they might now lose their jobs, and you suddenly realised you’d also lose your $40 million contract with Netflix and your gated mansion in Bel Air, and have to eat paella for the rest of your life.
